Artfarm follows up Somerset Farm Shop with Mayfair launch

October 16, 2023

Artfarm, the independent hospitality business behind Mayfair’s The Audley & Mount Street Restaurant is launching Farm Shop – a 4,000 sq ft farm shop and café at 64 South Audley Street.

Under the stewardship of former Fortnum & Mason chief executive Ewan Ventures, who joined the business in 2021, the two-floor venue builds on the success of the Farm Shop at the 1,000-acre Durslade Farm in Bruton, home to Hauser & Wirth Somerset.  The same award-winning produce will be on offer, as well as wine made from grapes grown on the estate and a hyper-seasonal wild food range from in-house forager Kenny Jelfs.  The ground floor will house a butchery counter, deli and a cheese room, with a 40 cover eatery and wine cellar downstairs.

Venters said: “Having been so warmly welcomed to Mayfair with the opening of The Audley, it felt right to open our first farm shop outside of Bruton in the same area. Farm Shop is a true community farm shop, celebrating the best farmers, growers and makers, and we look forward to bringing a taste of this incredible produce to London.”
